Poor Man's Son

I just want to be happy.

I saw my younger brother get married yesterday. I’ve never seen him tear up or seen him that happy before. I’ve never been able to tell him how much I genuinely love and admire him, and yesterday I told him in front of 600 close friends and family. Seeing him and seeing his new wife together, and seeing his new family did something to me, and I don’t know how to explain it.

Anonymous asked: Are you friends with lady-wanderer?

Definitely. She’s a genuinely compassionate and funny person and has become one of my favorite people to have a conversation with from tumblr.

#Blessed to know her.. Or whatever.

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again."

"You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable is each other."

As my brothers best man, trying to find an equally humorous & appropriate story involving my brother & I is proving more challenging than I thought.

"You ask me why I spend my life writing?
Do I find entertainment?
Is it worthwhile?
Above all, does it pay?
If not, then, is there a reason…?
I write only because
There is a voice within me
That will not be still."

Hating the fact I missed these guys last night. Next time.
